Joiner’s Fee waived with canned food donation during Canned Food Month!

GREENVILLE, OH (January 31, 2012) – The Y is one of the leading nonprofits for strengthening community through youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. A membership at the Y provides individuals and families many opportunities to grow, learn and thrive in a safe, positive environment. When you join the Y, you don’t just join a “gym”. You belong to something special.

The month of February is often associated with Valentine’s Day but it is also Canned Food Month. February is also the month when many “fall off the wagon” with their healthy New Year’s Resolutions. Let us help you stay on track and show some love to yourself and your community with a Y membership! During the entire month of February, we will waive the Joiner’s Fee with the donation of canned food items. Each canned food item will take $5 off the Joiner’s Fee. For example, with a donation of 20 canned food items the Y would completely waive the Joiner’s Fee on a Family Membership. All donations will go to a local food pantry.

Also during the month of February, the Y will accept canned food items on Sundays in lieu of payment for Day Pass Fees. Each canned food item will take $1 off the Day Pass Fee. For example, a youth would need to donate 5 canned food items for free entry on Sundays.

Ohio ranks 6th highest in the nation for households without adequate food supplies. By joining the Y in February, you have the opportunity to better yourself through a new healthy lifestyle, and those in our community through your donation of canned food items.

For more information about membership or to schedule a tour, contact Maria Weaver, Membership Director, at 548-3777 or mweaver@ymcadarkecounty.org.
